Preparing for a spring Marathon or Half Marathon?
Our workshop will help you get to start line in one piece! Injury prevention, top training and racing tips: another of our popular evening workshops for anyone training for a spring event from 10k to marathon or beyond…
History shows the majority of runners training for an event – whatever the distance – develop an injury, either major or minor, during the build up to it.
Reducing injury risks for runners
Fiona, from Space Clinic in Dalry Road near Haymarket, will give a presentation on common running injuries. She will talk about how you can recognise them, what to do when they arise, and more importantly, how to try and stop getting injured in the first place.
Top training tips to get you to the start line in one piece
Alex is an experienced distance runner and endurance coach at Edinburgh Athletic Club who has worked with athletes of all abilities for 30 years to help them improve from 5k to the marathon
